As NCF director, I’m challenged to think through the relational piece of NCF. Why do we have a “fellowship” for Christian nurses? Is it possible that our fellowship, spread over thousands of miles, could “encourage one another and build each other up” (1 Thessalonians 5:11)?

Meet the new director of Nurses Christian Fellowship!

Kathy Schoonover-Shoffner, PhD, RN, didn’t plan on being a nurse until she worked in a hospital as a high school senior and was captivated by the life-giving power of the nurse-patient relationship.

Stress BustersA year ago, Monica Orozco-Cantillo, R.N., had a big vision for the new NCF group of nurses in South Florida. Their first event, hosted at Monica’s church, was a “First Responder” weekend in partnership with firefighters, nurses and other healthcare professionals. It was a huge success.

Old FashionedGuest blogger, Cindy Carter shares about an opportunity to accompany her daughter, who hosts a Christian radio program, for an interview with Rik Swartzwelder, director of a new movie coming out on February 14, 2015.

Tire AngelLast year in the midst of a blustery winter, I walked out of a store and found a note on my windshield that I had a flat tire. I was running errands and could have thought, "Really? It's 30 degrees out here!"

However, I actually smiled when I thought of how God had already prepared the way ahead of me. Here is my list of reasons to be thankful:

Phone CallWhen I was a new nurse working in a hospital, I was shocked at the negativity that some of the nurses had towards their patients and their profession.

ReneePlease join our NCF staff team in saying thank you to Renee Lick, NCF Student Ministries Director. God has called Renee to leave her position with NCF at the end of August. She will continue ministering to students and faculty through another position with InterVarsity’s Graduate and Faculty ministry in Chicago.

Dr. Barbara WhiteDr. Barbara White, RN, CNS, is a world-changer in healthcare education. Since nursing school, she’s had ambitious dreams of teaching nursing as ministry, and even becoming a dean. Yet her life journey has included periods of questioning God’s call and how to fulfill her vision for God’s work.

Grounded in LoveWhat sets apart some healthcare providers from others?

Pat Farrell, RN, MSN, contemplated this question during a recent hospital stay as different nurses came into her room to care for her. She noticed that one nurse, in particular, helped her feel grounded by providing an atmosphere of security, trust and rest.

HeatherAs a nurse in urban health, Heather Cutillo, R.N., lives out God’s love in tangible ways through her work in clinics that serve the homeless, the uninsured, and the afflicted in the inner city.
